My eyes, oh my eyes looking at those lows.

Why are you using cruise missiles? You have no target painter or application mods, they are gonna lose so much damage shooting at cruisers and smaller which make up the bulk of the enemies in level 3 missions.

You do NOT need that much tank for level 3 missions, especially considering the raw buffer a battleship has, you don’t need to be cap stable, and Rapid Heavy Launchers will work much better than cruise missiles for the kind of targets you will be facing.

I still am adamant that even for an Alpha, a faction battlecruiser will work much better that a battleship. Even faction cruisers work well.

EDIT:
If you must use a Typhoon, here is an Alpha fit that can get through any Level 3 mission.

As @Sarah_Olson says above, I agree with her comments and suggestions.

Personnaly I use the Gnosis on my alpha alts for L3 security missions. If you are against “free ship” (though I think you needed to be Omega to get those in event login reward???, else you buy them on the market), then a Navy/Fleet battlecruisers would be more than enough as well (using medium size weapon). The limitation on skills for Alpha to Battlecruiser IV makes the Gnosis a much better option than a T1 battlecruiser, but they should work good enough.

Here is the last version of the Gnosis I was using on my Minmatar alt before giving her Omega and upgrading to an L4 battleship fit.

Note: T1 drones are good enough, but I would then use a set of 5 light and 5 medium drones matching the damage type to deal, to help taking out the cruiser and battlecruisers. In the cargo as an example I put all 4 types of shield amplifier, so I would switch the shield amplifier to the rats to face (if on a budget, or lack of availability in your area, the compact versions are good enough, though the Gistum c-type are generaly very cheap.

I just want OP to demonstrate that they can change when presented with helpful and respectful suggestions.

Yeah I’m gonna agree with this. Just because you can use a battleship doesn’t mean you should. Unless I had a stroke that jumbled my memory I’m pretty sure you can pull off L3s with a Navy Cruiser and a beefy fit for way less ISK than the base hull of a battleship.

Yes yes… we all know this.

Yet OP has made a second ONE HOUR vid with no actual proof OP saw the facts posted by calm headed people that this can be done better and cheaper…

Honestly convinced this is one huge troll or something. You got me man. Noone asked for this. :joy: Borderline torture that this is public.

I mean I made some wild fits when I was new but nothing like this… First thing I learned is that you don’t need to be capstable in a fit.
